Total physical response reflection

  1. 1. Total Physical Response ReflectionGabriela Quezada CabezasThe total Physical or TPR approach is based on teaching language using body movementsin order to react verbal input. This approach will be helpful if we are teaching to children orkinaesthetic students; moreover this will help us to develop an environment of motivation amongthe students and they are going to feel more relax. This approach also helps to improve the longterm retention. But as it was already mentioned this approach is mainly focused on teachingchildren, and we, as futures teacher-to-be, need to keep in mind that most students fromsecondary school can feel embarrassed if we used this approach with them. In this approach weas teachers are the directors of all students’ behaviour and through our activities and mimics wecan improve their intrinsic motivation on the class.The best characteristic of this approach is that it helps us also to develop the four skills(reading, writing, speaking and listening) and also the systems of language.
